Whatever your stance is on the December 25th dress code, one thing we can all agree on is that it never hurts to start planning ahead, and we have the perfect outfits for you, whichever camp you are in.
It’s a great excuse to really dress up.
We love being outdoors at the coast but here at Aloft we love bit of glamour too and we have a gorgeous range of dresses for the season. A few that would be perfect for Christmas are the Nuarlette . A delightful floral design print in bright pink, gold yellow, red and black. Or the Milly Flower Blaze Charcoal dress from Pom Amsterdam. A pretty midi dress with a floral and polka dot fabric with ruffles along the sleeves and shoulders. The main fabric is sheer, with the main body being lined.
We love a bit of bling and our range of jewellery from Ashiana will bring that extra sparkle to your Christmas Day outfit.
If you don’t want to leave the sofa
If you want to feel like you're wearing your pj's without feeling too scruffy, opt for a pair of silky bottoms and a cosy knit. Our wide leg trousers from Danish brand Black Colour look great with a chunky knit and trainers, or pair with the matching blouse for a full, pyjama style outfit. Or if a jogger is more your style a leopard print and heart design British brand Sugarhill Brighton in an easy grey and black colour way will work any of our comfy sweats. And don’t forget a cosy sock. Our Thunders Love collection are made from recycled materials in Northern Spain.
If your day always involves a long walk.
You might want something more elevated than your usual dog walking jacket for Christmas Day. Our Nucowenna is super soft and luxurious coat from Danish brand Numph. Or the Joella which is a gorgeous faux fur in a delicious festive red. And make sure you have a statement accessory like our Nutinna scarf.
If Cameron Diaz in The Holiday Is Your Christmas Muse.
Pile on cable-knits and cosy accessories. Our most versatile layering piece is from one of our favourites from Swedish brand Holebrook. Made from a stunning merino wool, the Sofie poncho can be worn many ways by rotating it and you can even wear it as a scarf. The Nefity cable knit scarf comes in either a pastel blue or ecru. It’ll look the part either indoors over a simple knit with cosy trousers and shearling slippers or on a walk to the local pub. And you will need the cute pom pom hat to complete the look.
You want a twist on a Christmas jumper.
Opt for a Fairisle knit that has an alpine feel but isn't as novelty as a Christmas jumper. Our Jumper 1234 Val in cashmere is a beautiful piece that will take you through the season. Or how about our Nuaniet fairisle cardigan from Danish brand Numph. Or the Tibet from French brand Mat de Misaine. Knitted in a soft wool blend yarn in a deep navy colour, the jumper has a fairisle pattern knitted across the top section in blue and cream. Any would look great either with jeans and hiking boots or a slip skirt and chunky boots.
